Police Investigation Closes Massage Parlor

Categories: News

On Thursday, March 14, 2013 the Fort Myers Police Department arrested two women and closed the New Asian Massage located at 1791 Boyscout Drive. Recently, FMPD received information that the business could be using the massage parlor as a way to facilitate prostitution. Officer David Conticelli began conducting surveillance on the business. Officer Conticelli observed a steady stream of male clientele going to and from the business. In addition, Officer Conticelli located an internet classified ad that featured women promoting the business wearing intimate lingerie. With reason to believe prostitution was actively being solicited, an undercover operation was established.

On Thursday at 5:40 p.m. an officer posing as a customer entered the business an ordered a $70 one-hour massage. The female took the officer to a room, told him to remove all of his clothing and then offered to commit a sexual act for a predetermined price. Police arrested Chen Ya, the owner of the business, (d.o.b. 2-1-55 of Fort Myers) for deriving support from the proceeds of prostitution and for driving without a license. Ma Aimian (d.o.b. 7-5-68 of Fort Myers) was arrested for soliciting prostitution. Inside the business officers located numerous items that indicated the business was not operating as a legitimate massage parlor. There was no phone to the business and the two females offering their services were not licensed. The business has been given a three-day eviction notice.
